1. Jordy Nelson (GB) +4.8
The most underrated WR in football. No ifs or buts, just consistently excellent.
2. Andre Johnson (HST) +3.7
Carrying on exactly from where he left off last year. Leads league with a frankly ridiculous 4.07 Yards per Route Run.
3. Andrew Hawkins (CLV) +3.5
We are not supposed to have favorites but, in our weaker moments, this guy is one.
4. Sammy Watkins (BUF) +3.5
Looks every inch the player the Bills trade up to get.
5. Antonio Brown (PIT) +3.3
Sure-handed (zero drops) and elusive (four missed tackles) he continues to excite whenever he has the ball.
6. Calvin Johnson (DET) +3.1
Still great but needs to up his catch rate (caught only 54% of targets) to top this list the way his talent warrants.
7. Dez Bryant (DAL) +2.5
Is this the year Bryant is at his best for the entire year. Cowboy fans expect it!
8. Markus Wheaton (PIT) +1.8
If this form continues, could link with Brown to form one of the better WR combinations
9. Anquan Boldin (SF) +1.7
The Ravens can say whatever they want, but with hindsight they don’t make that trade.
10. Brian Quick (STL) +1.3
With the league’s third-best Yards per Route Run (3.26) is he just “flashing” or here to stay?
